Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K–This sturdy offering presents full-color photos of charismatic canines embellished with pull tabs and tactile (mostly furlike) textures. The brief, rhyming text highlights various critters and their behaviors, making comparisons and contrasts. On one page, a wheaton terrier (Little dog) is posed next to an English mastiff (Big dog) and a nervous-looking Chihuahua (Teeny dog quakes), while opposite, a neatly coiffed schnauzer backs away from a damp mutt in a tub and the verse finishes, Dry dog,/Wet dog–/shake,/shake,/shake! (a pull tab moves the bather's head from side to side). Unfortunately, some of the concepts are not as clearly presented. One spread reads: Happy dog,/Sad dog,/Friendly dog licks./Slobber dog,/Pant dog,/Drooly dog sticks! Aside from the awkward phrasing, children may not notice that the aforementioned pooch has a touchable sticky tongue (it's rather small) and miss the point completely. A page showing a Lab puppy in a squatting position declares, All dogs poop, while the English bulldog standing nearby lifts its leg–with the help of a pull tab–revealing, All dogs pee. The book ends with foldouts that introduce each pet by name and breed. Leave this one for the bookstore crowd.–Joy Fleishhacker, School Library Journal

My 1 1/2 year old loves this book.
S. P. D.
Also, parts of the book have moving parts, pull this tab, and the dog shake his head, scratches, or wags a tail.

I bought this book for my daughter's first birthday and she's loved it since the first time I read it to her.

My husband bought this book for our 4 year old (who is famous among everyone we know for being both a book lover and a dog lover), and it is, not surprisingly, one of her favorites. She took it to her pre-K class today, and when I picked her up, her teachers were raving about it! They said that they read it at least three times to the class and that it was the hit of the day! The fun starts before the book is even opened. The tails of the three dogs on the cover are touch-and-feel furry or wag with the pull of a tab. It just gets better from there. This book is packed with a wide variety of clever and creative interactive tricks that are well integrated with the entertaining verbiage. The book is, in fact, clever enough to engage my husband, myself, and our older children; even my college aged daughter is currently petting, pulling, and generally getting a kick out of this book as I write this review. I am online now to order another copy as a gift to my daughter's preschool in her name. Otherwise, she will want to bring this book to school every day for the rest of the year! We highly recommend this book!

I love dogs, so when I saw this book in the store, I had to buy it for my two granddaughters, ages 1 and 3. They loved pulling the tabs to make the tails wag and especially to make the dog pee on the tree! The best part is that this book is very well constructed and can take lots of pulling and petting. Cute pictures and clever, too!

I bought this for my 1 yr old daughter and she just love it - in fact both myself and my husband thought this is one of the best interactive book we have bought out of our hundreds of books! Very sturdy , and very informative ( as it gives you all the names of breed of dogs that have appeared). I have no regret in buying this book at all !

Fun book, a little too thick to carry in the diaper bag for distractions, but lots of fun. Great interactive book. The "Alphabet" book by the same author is better though.

I bought this book for my daughter's first birthday and she's loved it since the first time I read it to her. I admit, I love it too! At bedtime she more often than not requests this book (by panting, her baby sign for "dog"!)
It's a lot bigger than I expected and except for one or two, the moveable parts are pretty sturdy. She's bent one up pretty bad so I kind of have to rush through that page to keep her from tearing the dog's leg off! If your child is a little older and gentler with books it shouldn't be a problem. Our cat even watches and bats at the moving parts! :) Over all it's a great book, and I'm planning on getting the cat one for her next.

Format: Hardcover
This book is such a great concept, especially is you are a dog lover like me.

The book is really for children, but I am sure many adults, like myself will also enjoy it.
The book has pop ups in it, along with some tactile fun, with pieces are fur you can pet.

This is a very nice book and would make an excellent gift for someone, such as for baby shower.
I highly recommend this book.

This board book takes moving parts to a whole new level! Mostly, it's the tails...very sturdily constructed so it should hold up for some time, this book should have great appeal for a young child with a dog in the household!

My husband and I really love this book. We have two dogs so we bought this for our son. It's so cute and entertaining! We don't mind reading it over and over. It's a very clever idea, not your run of the mill feel and move book!
